“I want to thank you for the professional way you have managed my home in Wild Dunes this season.
It has been a hassle free experience for me. The booking went great as planned regarding the rates and minimum stay. My utility bills have been lower, thanks to your diligence in setting the air conditioner correctly and checking all the appliances. I have had no surprise maintenance charges or repair bills. Thank you for communicating with me about the house and different things that have come up. I feel you are looking after my home for me while I am away and know what is going on with all the clients who have stayed there. Your personal touch has made a world of difference financially and for my piece of mind. The feedback I received from people that have stayed at my home has been very positive, thank you again!”
-Pat Hamberger, Owner of #2 Lake Village and #16 Oyster Row
“We have been using Nathan Bullock and Deserving Vacations for almost a year now and have only accolades for his level of service, understanding our objectives as owners and being responsive to both owner and customer needs. We have been rental owners on Isle of Palms for more than 10 years and had always used the services of the larger rental companies. The result from the large rental management firms was always mediocre. After purchasing a large house for rent, we began working with Nathan as a trial to see if a smaller provider could deliver improved service. Nathan has delivered from the start maximizing our rental income as directed; keeping guests satisfied; and most importantly for us, maintaining our house as if it where his.
Our positive experience has led us to pull a condo from a larger provider and also have it managed by Nathan. In the first few months he has substantively increased off season rentals and been highly engaged in making sure the condo is upgraded in a cost-effective manner to maximize rentals.
We are extremely happy with Nathan and Deserving Vacations and recommend them to anyone looking for a seasoned property manager that will be vested in your rental property and provide an owner experience that is tailored to your specific wants and needs. “
Seth and Marrene Twery & Scott Twery and Debbie Thiessen, Owners of 812 Carolina Blvd and Mariners Walk 10F
“This was our first venture into owning a vacation property, let alone having a property manager, and we could not be happier with our decision to select Nathan. Admittedly, we were a bit hesitant since the other options were more well-known management companies and we thought what we wanted was a large company with plenty of resources and tons of experience. We are so glad we did not go with them and couldn’t be more pleased with Nathan and Deserving Vacations.
What won us over in selecting Nathan was the personal touch. From the first phone call to interview him through all of our regular interactions, Nathan has been responsive, professional and a true partner for us in renting our property. Nathan has offered constructive feedback on how to make our condo more attractive and has consistently gone above and beyond anything that we could have expected in terms of customer service and follow up. The website is updated on a regular basis and every check from Nathan has come in on or ahead of time.
We are fortunate to have Nathan as our partner and welcome any phone calls or emails to discuss what a great job he has done.”
Dave and Erin Veres, new owners of Port O Call A103
“I have enjoyed working with Nathan Bullock of Deserving Vacations for 2 years now and herein impart high praise for his consistent responsiveness, sound advice on owner-related decisions, and attention to detail in the unit. Nathan is always available by either phone or email for consultation and booking updates/alternatives. I have been a renter on Isle of Palms for more than 15 years. My experiences with the mega-rental management companies have been unsatisfactory overall. Nathan’s personal touch has ensured that my unit experiences higher rental volume than comparable alternatives on IOP. Without hesitation, I recommend Deserving Vacations for first-rate management of a rental property.
Dr. William Hoekstra, Owner of Lagoon Villa 22
“Your property management has been the best Don and I have had in ten years of renting. You generated more rental income from our one bedroom condo than either of the other two large property management companies who lacked the personal touch you gave to us. Every time I called, you either answered or got back with me the same day. That also did not happen with the large companies. I wish I had known about you several years ago.
I can tell everyone looking for property management that Deserving Vacations is the best. Working with you is a pleasure.”
-Sandra and Don Boyd, Owners of Port O Call A103
“In 2009, the remodel of our condo was completed. During this time, we received a postcard in the mail from Nathan Bullock who was advertising his property management services. We noticed on the postcard that the unit next door to us was serviced by Mr. Bullock. Throughout the year in 2009, we were able to compare our unit’s monthly reservations to the unit next door. We had many vacancies even with our new remodel while the unit next door had solid reservations each month. It just didn’t add up. We contacted Mr. Bullock and decided it was time for a change.
We have never regretted our decision to change from a large management company to Nathan Bullock. Bigger is not better. We are very pleased with our rentals. We feel we get the exposure that our unit deserves. Not only do we get steady rental income, but we have a professional representative that caters to the needs of our guests. Just read our guest comments on either the Deserving Vacations or VRBO websites. They love working with him. We love working with him. We know our unit is in good hands.”
